We want you to know that we have been praying for you for a long time now. You have been on our hearts since the day God laid adoption on our hearts many years ago. As the time for adoption has drawn near, you are in our thoughts and prayers a lot, as we know you are facing incredibly difficult decisions ahead. Please know that no matter your choice, we think you are brave and we will continue to pray for you. We hope that our profile gives you a glimpse into our life together. We aren’t perfect, but we seek to honor God and honor others in how we live. We laugh a lot and love a lot in our home. We seek adventures, but also treasure the routine of our family. We are so excited to bring a child into our home that we will cherish with all that we are. We will love, grow, and encourage your child into the person that God has created him or her to be. Because we recognize that we are not perfect, we lean on the Holy One to help as we parent our little girl and whatever other children the Lord blesses us with. We will give them the foundation of love and nurturing they need to develop successfully. Then we will encourage and inspire them to chase after their dreams. We would be so honored if you choose us to parent your child. Prayers for you in your journey ahead. You are special and dearly loved.
Sincerely, Carson and Jennifer
Who Are We? We are Carson and Jennifer and we have been married for eleven years! We are from the same hometown and our families are very close friends. We were high school sweethearts who continued our love story through college and got married in 2009. We love leading worship together, seeing Broadway musicals, movie nights at home, and camping with our families. Carson loves all things music and sports. Jenn loves all things Disney and cooking. Together we love adventures and quiet nights at home enjoying each other’s company. Our little girl keeps us busy and entertained as she enjoys dance parties, playing in the dirt, and all things princesses! At the core of who we are, we seek to honor the Lord and people in all that we do and say.
Occupations: Carson is a minister in a local church and is finishing seminary soon. Jennifer is an elementary school teacher. She looks forward to taking our children to school with her when they are elementary age!
Where do we live? We live in a small town outside of a large city. Our town is part of an amazing school system that Jennifer works for and has cute shops and restaurants. We built our dream home in 2019 as we prepared our hearts and a place to raise our family. We live on an acre and a half lot with lots of room for outside play activities. We have 4 bedrooms and 4 bathrooms and an open-concept living space where we spend time with family and friends often. We live very close to our friends and family and love going on walks, having bonfires, and going to community events together. We also live right down the street from our church and the school that our children will go to.
Why Adoption? We have felt the call to adoption separately after the Lord laid it on our hearts at a young age. We watched families in our church grow their families through adoption and that opened our minds and hearts to adoption as children/youth. This was a conversation often through our years of dating and engagement and we always knew this would be a part of the way we grow our family. After years of infertility, we knew we wanted a domestic infant adoption to be the next step in our journey, which didn’t change after welcoming our miracle baby in 2018. We know that adoption is the way God wants to grow our family and we look forward to welcoming our next little love!
